Rock Falls Tourism is proud to present the Koloni Bike Share program in Rock Falls
There are two rack locations - the first is at the RB&W Park on the riverfront, and the second is on the concrete slab behind the Days Inn. These bikes are controlled by Bluetooth technology and users must download an application on their smartphones. The application works with iPhone and Android phones and there are instructions posted on the racks, and steps to follow right on the bikes themselves. Bikes are mainly sized for teens and adults at this time while the program is in the early stages of implementation.
After the user has downloaded the Koloni Share app, they must create an account and input a method of payment. After that, simply scan the QR code on the back of the bike and you’re set to enjoy your ride! The current rate is $1.50 per hour and the bikes are equipped with GPS tracking technology. Once the user is finished with their ride, all they have to do is line the lock back up with a slot in the rack for the lock to close around, and hit, “end ride” on the app. Users are urged to ensure this is done properly to avoid unnecessary charges, and to be sure the bike can be available for the next user.
All bikes must be returned to the rack after use and failure to do so could result in extra penalties. Bikes should not be left on trails or anywhere else throughout the city or neighboring towns. All users will be asked to agree to terms and conditions upon creation of their account. Service ends at 9pm each day.
The program is available April through October and possibly longer depending on weather.
